I understand your problem. Becoming an instructor is always promoted as the next step for a worthy student, while in effect; it is just a way to get free labor. Most students never pursue a teaching career in the martial arts as adults, so, even though there are some life lessons to be learned from the experience, it is a usually waste of time for most students. Students stay with a martial art because they enjoy the training. However, once they start teaching, they rarely get to train in the art and the fun stops. It is best to train, have fun, and perfect your skills while young, and then, if still interested, pursue teaching once you are an adult.
Thanks for the information about the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), I have not considered it before, but, due to your email, I will do some research and add my findings to the website. I am now busy trying to complete the TaskMaster martial art school management software application, but I will add this task to my to-do list.
